    Significance Statement
    This is an excellent example of residential architecture with quality of design by Roland Coate. It does not fit neatly into the category of French Revival (Norman); rather, it might be better classified as Provincial. It is not entirely visible from the public right-of-way due to a perimeter wall and dense vegetation.
